      but until the supreme court says otherwise, it's a done deal.  That's why the German courts might now have jurisdiction over Rumsfeld et alia; the first time an attempt to bring charges was made in Germany, the court ruled that the US courts had jurisdiction.  Under the military commissions act, the US courts are now prohibited from hearing these cases, so I guess it's up to the Germans or ICC.
